Zoe 6" x 6" Mixed Media Workshop

There are so many people interested in this type of mixed media personal expression, but are not sure where to begin. Also known as "She Art" coined by Christy Tomlinson, this form of Mixed Media is similar to "The Book of Me" by Angie Pedersen, a book all about scrapbooking about yourself. However the "She Art" movement is all about you expressed purely in the mixed media format. Its all about you or whomever your creating it for. This is a wonderful opportunity to try out a Mixed Media project.

Artwork Featuring the Aug 2015 Stamp of the Month

Featuring the August 2015 Stamp of the month, Framed and inspired by an original design by Michelle Bowley @ wandering scissors. I dabbled into a new color for myself, Slate Cardstock (X5930) and I'm in love. It really makes the colors pop off the item your creating (photo doesn't do it justice).
